The Current Affairs New & Used Book Giveaway Promotional!

For a number of reasons, Current Affairs has a tendency to accidentally amass large quantities of new and used books in its offices. These are often of great value to our work, but sometimes begin to take up so much room as to be a useless impediment to editorial progress. For this reason, we have launched the Current Affairs New and Used Book Subscription Tie-In Giveaway. 

Starting March 15th, when you sign up for a Current Affairs subscription, you are eligible to receive your choice of the following books FREE. Just indicate your top three book preferences when you subscribe in the “Additional Information” box. We’ll dispatch your book to the address you listed. Because Current Affairs comes out once every two months, subscribers

NOTE: Because these books are both used and new, we have devised a simple but extremely confusing code in order to describe the books’ nature and conditions. Books with a * are paperbacks. Books with a † are more well-worn. Books with a ~ are hardcovers but have no dust jackets.

The fact that Current Affairs possesses these books should in no way be taken as an endorsement of their contents, nor should the fact that Current Affairs is ridding itself of them be taken as disapproval of said contents.
